MOD Pizza – Dillon James

Usually when I eat at MOD Pizza, I get something fairly meat heavy, but this time I wanted something a little different. The Dillon James is basically a Margherita, with a variety of cheeses and some tomato slices. I added some red onions for a bit more flavor, and it was fantastic. This might be my new favorite thing at MOD.

Pieology Pizzeria

This is another one of those build-your-own pizza places that we’ve gotten a ton of here the last few months. This one is decent, but like most of them, is nothing special. I’d put it about half way between Blaze and MOD.

I got the Butcher’s Choice pizza and added green peppers and red onions. The crust left a lot to be desired, but the toppings were fantastic quality. If you’re in the area, it’s not a bad choice.

MOD Pizza

Yet another new pizza restaurant has opened by my house! This one is a lot like Blaze pizza. It’s basically Subway but for pizza, which is a wonderful thing. You can either build your own pizza with whatever toppings, cheese, and sauce you’d like, or pick from one of their “classics.”

I went with their ‘mad dog’ three-meat pizza. It’s delicious. The crust, sauce, cherse, and toppings are all excellent, and the crust in particular is really good. I highly recommend MOD Pizza if there’s one in your area.

Pizzeria Seven Twelve

Pizzeria Seven Twelve is a dimly lit pizza restaurant in Orem, Utah. They offer a variety of pizzas, sandwiches, and salads, including a good selection of vegetarian and gluten-free options. Most of that isn’t really my thing, but I’ve been wanting to try their pizza for quite a while now, and I’ve finally gotten around to it.

I tried their Sausage pizza, and overall it was fantastic. The most noticeable thing about their pizzas is the quality of the crust. It’s one of the best tasting crusts I’ve ever had, and the consistency and thickness are perfect. The toppings were really good too, with the combination of the roasted onions and peppers with the quality sausage resulting in an excellent overall flavor. My only real complaints were that my pizza was very slightly overcooked, and there could have been a bit more cheese in a few place, but those don’t stop me from saying this is one of the best pizzas I’ve had. And I’ve had a lot of pizza.

Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana

Settebello in Salt Lake City, Utah offers a more genuine Italian pizza experience than your typical pizzeria. If you like a thin crust brick oven pizza with excellent cheeses, this is a good option. While I certainly prefer a more American-style pizza most of the time, every now and then you need to mix things up a bit. They offer several different options for pizzas, with a lot of vegetarian and vegan options.

The Margherita pizza that I got was pretty decent. The cheese was pretty good, but the crust was a bit too well-done for my taste. Overall not bad, I’d recommend it for anyone into Italian-style pizzas.

Blaze Pizza – Lehi, UT

I tried out a new pizza place today. Blaze Pizza is definitely one of those restaurants that most people go to for silly social reasons rather than actually wanting the food, but it was still a good pizza at a decent price. I went with their Meat Eater pizza on a classic thin crust, which includes mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, meatballs, and red onions. Overall it was pretty good, but I think I’ll try a few more toppings next time since they charge a flat price for any pizza with more than one topping, leaving the extras basically free. While it’s not quite the type of pizza I typically go for (I prefer a cheap delicious pizza over an expensive crap one like most fancy places :P), I’d definitely go again.

Pacific Wheel Pizza Co. – Pepperoni and Sausage

On the Santa Monica Pier in California, there’s a little pizza restaurant that’s actually really good! For around $9, you can get an excellent personal pizza, with very high quality toppings and a pretty decent crust.

My sister tried the LA Dog from the restaurant next door and it looked amazing, so if you’re at the pier, you should maybe give both a try.
